According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, Mets minor leaguers Jordany Valdespin and Cesar Puello have each agreed to a 50 game suspension in connection with the Biogenesis scandal. Among players accepting 50-game suspensions: #Rangers’ Cruz, #Tigers’ Peralta, #Phlllies’ Bastardo, #Mets’ Valdespin, #Padres’ Cabrera. — Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) August 5, 2013   Also suspended: #Yankees’ Cervelli, #Mariners’ Montero, #Mets’ Puello, #Astros’ Escalona, #Padres’ De Los Santos, #Yankees’ F. Martinez. — Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) August 5, 2013 Wow, the Valdespin suspension comes as a huge and unexpected surprise… The only positive I take from this is that Puello will show up to camp with this behind him and a whole season of clean testing under his belt. As for Valdespin, I don’t know what to think… Valdespin is in Triple-A and currently batting .466/.533/.759 with three home runs and 24 RBI in 67 plate appearances, while Puello is batting .328/.405/.550 with 16 home runs and 73 RBI
